Nickel release of jewelry after abrasion simulation

Item ID: 10110

Nickel release of jewelry after abrasion simulation

Protect the health of your consumers by having your jewelry products that come in immediate and prolonged skin contact tested for the release of nickel after abrasion simulation.

Let your products test and convince your customers with your high safety standard!

 

Content of the testing

What is content of the testing?

We use a material sample to test the release of nickel. This is done based on DIN EN 1811, following abrasion simulation based on DIN EN 12472 and according to the legal requirements of the EU Regulation 1907/2006.

This ensures that your products do not pose any health risks to your customers due to Nickel release of jewelry after abrasion simulation.

For testing your products for nickel release without abrasion simulation, we offer testing for nickel 1.

Test process

  1. Order at the online shop

    Configure your desired individual chemical test in the TÜV Rheinland business client online shop and send us your purchase order.

  2. Delivery of material sample

    Please note that you must send the number of test samples/material samples required for testing to TÜV Rheinland at your own cost. For the exact location, please refer to the accompanying note for the test sample.

    Please enclose the accompanying note for the test sample (attachment of your order confirmation) with your test sample shipment or, for large shipments, attach it on the outside of the outer packaging.  This allows us to quickly and easily match your sample with your order. Receipt and registration of the test sample happens at the respective laboratory site. The same applies for the weighing of the materials to be tested, which is based on the amount of the sample required for the test (material sample collection).

  3. Testing

    The chemical testing of the material samples is performed in our DIN EN ISO 17025 accredited laboratories according to legal and standard market requirements. The chemical testing inevitably destroys the samples, and they cannot be reused.

  4. Sending of test results

    Analysis of the measurement results and documentation of the results in a test report.

  • Produktkategorie
    Ihr zu prüfendes Material wird später in dieser Produktkategorie eingesetzt

  • Artikelbezeichnung
    Unter welcher Artikelbezeichnung läuft das Produkt, in dem das zu prüfende Material später eingesetzt wird?

  • Komponente
    Der von Ihnen zu prüfende Bestandteil

  • Material
    Aus welchem Material besteht Ihr zu prüfender Bestandteil?

  • Farbe
    Welche Farbe hat das Material?

  • Mischprobe
    In der Regel werden Mischproben zur Verkürzung der Durchlaufzeiten gebildet. Bei einer Mischprobe werden bis zu 3 Einzelmaterialien in einer Probe zusammengefasst, zu je gleichen Anteilen gemischt und gemeinsam der jeweiligen chemischen Prüfung unterzogen. Die Anzahl der zu mischenden Proben ergibt sich dabei aus den Anforderungen

  • Nachprüfungen
    Bei der Mischprobenbildung besteht generell das Risiko, dass das Ergebnis der Mischprobe Auffälligkeiten aufweist, welche nahelegen, dass mindestens eine der Materialien nicht den gesetzlichen bzw. marktüblichen Grenzwerten entspricht. Um festzustellen, welche der Materialien innerhalb der Mischprobe die Auffälligkeiten aufweist, müssen die Materialien der Mischprobe jeweils einzeln nachgetestet werden. Dies führt zu Zusatzkosten, welche durch den Auftraggeber bei Beauftragung getragen werden müssen.
